The Untouchables Season 1 Episode 25

Chicago, 1931. Eliot Ness and his men had cracked the bootleg empire of Al Capone, by smashing his breweries and speakeasies.* But now, thousands of gallons of alcohol were coming into the city from an outside source. Ness meets with D.A. Beecher Asbury; it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out where the booze is coming from, they’ve found 5-gallon cans with “”Brawley Mills, Brawley, New York”” stamped on them. Chemical analysis showed the stuff is 190 proof, no doubt produced under U.S. Government permit– but it contained no denaturant, so it is safe to drink.
